Abstract: The aim of the present paper is to outline a formal framework for dealing with the problem of decision making with multiple interdependent goals. The approach uses of aspiration levels in order to bridge the gap between the prescriptive and the descriptive approaches thus allowing the problems of evaluation, choice and generation of alternatives to be treated in a coherent formal framework. On the other hand the approach recognizes the existence of interdependent and very often conflicting goals and suggests that in the case when the relationships between the goals can not be modelled by means of mathematical equations one should employ some techniques for knowledge representation based on fuzzy production rules and basic concepts from the theory of approximate reasoning.
